Soap is a unique and desirable artistic medium. There is no other artistic medium with the same variability and versatility for expression as soap.
First, soap offers several different consistencies or phases to work with. It can be formulated to be liquid like water, thick like pudding, malleable like clay or hard like cheese. Each phase offers its own advantages with respect to artistic techniques that can be exploited to make soap beautiful. For instance, very liquid soap-almost as thin as water- can produce delicate, intricate swirls. Furthermore, since much of nature is formed through flow, liquid soap lends itself well to creating natural, flowing landscape art. Pudding like consistency works well for piping soap into, say, flowers or other extrusions. When it is hard like cheese it is also malleable and can be manipulated to make soap art with the same techniques used by clay and sculpture artists. Soap that is hard like cheese can be etched or used as a canvas for palette knife soap paintings.
Besides texture variation, soap can be formulated with varying translucencies. It can be opaque, translucent or transparent. These varying optical properties can be harnessed to interact with light to produce unique and yet unexplored soap art.
Lastly, when soap is used, it "melts", thereby giving it still further artistic potential that is just beginning to be realized. The fact that soap melts as it is used probably deters many artists from choosing this medium of expression. At first glance it may seem to be a waste to put such effort into making a so transient a piece beautiful. But consider fireworks! Are they not an even shorter lived artistic expressions that people enjoy all over the world? Or how about beautifully decorated desserts? Once people experience these delightful, transient art forms, they usually desire more.
The property of soap melting as it is used actually offers a benefit that can’t be found in other tangible art forms. If the layers of soap are arranged properly then as one layer melts and the next layer is presented, the soap can be used to present a message or a story just like you would read in a book. Soap can be an effective medium of communication.
By considering and harnessing all the properties of soap, it is possible to present beautiful art, encouraging messages, amusing stories and more in a moisturizing, fragrant, cleansing experience that will serve to refresh the soul. - Grace
